    Hi there!!! nearly finished my job application but i am struggling on 2 question.... someone people might find these questions easy but i find it hard... maybe questions you find hard are easy for me so i dont mind helping out either

    question 1) Give an example of when you had Convey a complex message (50 words)

    question 2) Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social & Securityare the key areas driving IBM's business. What personal qualities, skills and interests do you have which couldsupport this? (Max 100 words)


    Consultancy is a client focused profession so you should consider this as incredibly important when thinking of your answer.

    In regard to question 1, it wants you to put something complex in simple terms because a lot of clients are not going to know what you are on about if you go into too much detail. It will go over their head so you need to be able to show you know what you're on about but in a way that the message gets across.
